Hello All,

Today for the first time in seven years one of only two remaining Class 103 Park Royal DMUs was started up. This was the first time under the ownership of the HRDG but hopefully it will be many times again. This is a really big step in the preservation of the unit and eventually running it on the railway. I would like to say well done to every one who helped out to get it this far. I hope there will be some more people who can help out.
Here is a video of today:

Good on you. It is good that such a small group has done something great like this. I wish the railway and the diesel group all the best in the reopening of the rest of the line.
Unfortunatly the one thing you won't be able to have is a class 22 going up and down the line. That would be a great sight.
